OSMP Memo Regarding Colorado Labor Requirement/High County Conservation: pdf

Please refer to the link above. We are posting a notice of waiver per the statute (CRS 8-17-101(1) which states that Colorado labor shall be employed to perform at least eighty percent of the work. The City has found there is reasonable evidence to demonstrate insufficient Colorado labor to perform the work of the project and that compliance with article 17, section 1, title 8, C.R.S., as amended, would create an undue burden that would substantially prevent the project from proceeding to completion. Accordingly, the City waives the requirement of section 8-17-101, C.R.S., that the contractor employ at least eighty percent Colorado labor to perform work on the project.
